Altenew A Year In Review Blog Hop...

Today, over at Altenew, they are taking a look at some favorite projects of 2018.  I have been so blessed to hop along for many of this years release hops and so I definitely have a few favorites to share.  Altenew Stamps and dies have quickly become some of my most favorite stamps and I always feel so inspired when I see their newest designs. 

Here are 5 of my favorite projects of 2018....(all supplies linked at the end of this post)

Altenew November 2018 Release

This card was made using Handpicked Bouquet and the Watercolor Stripes Cover die.  I love a good white card base and how this beautiful bloom adds a pop of color.

Altenew November 2018 Release

Kind Confetti is an adorable stamp set that has so many possibilities.  I stamped a rainbow of colors here and then added the thank you die in white.  

Altenew Color Therapy

I have really enjoyed using the Altenew Artist Markers.  They blend so beautifully!  I colored up these blooms from the Best Mom stamp set and then layered the miss you die cut in white card stock. Super easy!

June 2018 Altenew

Altenew has a beautiful selection of banner supplies.  I was able to create this clean and simple banner with just a few letters and the Pinstripe Stamp set.  

Altenew June 2018 Release

This last hello card was so much fun to make.  I used the Ditsy Print stamp set by heat embossing several of the images on a piece of vellum.  I did a little copic coloring on the back of the vellum so the color would show through.  I added it to an aqua card base and then attached the mega hello die on the top.
